  • Ealey makes her mark once again at Class 4A meet
    ALBUQUERQUE — It will be a long time before Los Alamos High School will see another athlete the like of Chase Ealey. If ever. It will certainly be a long time before the Hilltoppers will have an athlete as successful. Ealey, a two-sport star for the Hilltoppers, put an exclamation point on a career filled with highlights last week at the Class 4A track and field championship meet. For the second straight year, Ealey won three individual state titles and had a hand in taking a pair of relay state titles. Ealey picked up 26 points, once again becoming the top-scoring athlete in 4A, topping her total of 23.5 one year earlier.

    Albuquerque blasted in series opener Thursday night A few days ago, the Albuquerque Isotopes were on a roll, but since then they’ve lost three straight contests, including being on the wrong end of a waxing to start a long homestand.
